This is Minecraft but not as you know it. Although not officially Minecraft, the Minecrafters Bible has been created by Christopher Miko and Garrett Romines, who having seen the amazing connection children have with this game and have been taking Minecraft to schools as a teaching aid. Their aim with the Minecrafters Bible was to produce something unique and tell the stories of the bible in a language that children understand. Beginning with ‘The Creation’, this simple and engaging presentation of both the Old and New Testament show the stories using the terrains and 3d blocks that Minecraft fans will easily identify with. Not only will they be able to explore the major themes within the bible but the young readers can also marvel at the building skills shown by Romines and Miko. The entire books were actually built in Minecraft and then photo edited and put together with the stories Romines adapted from the bible. The attention to detail is incredible and even include Miko’s specially created skins for the characters. The books are informative and full of humour, there are also references to the game itself that any serious Minecraft fan will enjoy spotting. Thankfully I no longer need to refer to my review copy as it has disappeared into the clutches of my Minecraft mad nine year old and he isn’t giving it back anytime soon. ~ Shelley Fallows
An amazing new edition - each Testament contains double the stories and both volumes are in a presentation box set. Enter a new world - full of exciting quests, danger, and miracles.
Walk into the Garden of Eden and see tumbling waterfalls and lush landscapes; accompany Noah as he builds his ark; see the parting of the Red Sea; watch the blocks of the Jericho walls break apart; witness Jesus perform miracles - all created in Minecraft!
Stories from the Bible are retold in block form, capturing the breathtaking adventure of these well-known tales. Since 2009, Minecraft has taken the gaming world by storm. Now hugely popular with children, those familiar with the phenomenon will love this new world and the adventures of God's people.
Garrett Romines, and Christopher Miko; skilled in using games and toys to create fun learning environments and products for children, have re-created Bible stories with the famous virtual blocks to produce vibrant, and complex 3-D worlds filled with adventure and using astonishing imagination. The images have been captured and combined with text boxes and speech bubbles to explain the stories for 7-11 year olds. The text is light, but explains the events thoroughly for the age group, and the dialogue includes in-game humour.
